Woman, child hit by wheel
A woman was injured while shielding her child from a wheel which fell off a truck in Benoni, on the East Rand, paramedics said.
ER24 spokeswoman Vanessa Jackson said the woman and her three-year-old child were walking on the side of the road when two of truck's wheels fell off and bounced towards them.
"One of the [wheels] then collided into her hip and she suffered a bump on her head as well as scrapes on her hands," said Jackson.
The woman and her child were taken to hospital, where their conditions were reported as stable.
The truck driver was not injured.
